paris - French President Emmanuel Macron has defended the rocket attack on targets in Syria. The intervention was necessary to give the international community 'some credibility', the president said in an interview that was broadcast by several French media.

France, the United States and Great Britain fired 105 missiles on Syria early Saturday morning. The countries acted together to return the supposed attack with poison gas in the Syrian Douma. Macron said the attack was 'executed perfectly. 'All projectiles would have achieved their goal.

The president said he would like to work for a political solution to the conflict in Syria. He wants to talk to all parties involved, including Russia. Nevertheless, he voiced strong criticism of Moscow: an ally of the Assad regime. He said that Russia is 'naturally complicit' with the actions of the Syrian government.

Russia did not use chlorine gas according to Macron. However, according to the president, the country has tried to prevent the international community from using diplomatic channels to stop the use of chemical weapons.
